If you are headed out to Nashville International Airport Tuesday, you can expect delays. BNA posted on Twitter the following message.
“We are experiencing a partial internet outage, likely caused by construction, affecting various airlines. Repairs are underway. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.”

The message doesn’t address a timeline of when the issue will be corrected or what airlines are affected. A second tweet was released shortly after the first stating, “Crews are onsite working. We don’t have an estimated time of competition.”
A local Williamson County resident who is currently at the airport with a flight scheduled on Southwest to depart at 2 p which is still grounded as of 3:40 shared with us how the outage is delaying travel.
-Main ticket counter is having to manually check each bag due which took approximately 45 minutes.
-Manual boarding passes were being issued due to the outage.
-As passengers were boarding the plane, they were manually checked off a list
-Manual safety checks were completed for the airplane due to no computers were online to complete the check.
-Cell service is spotty and the gates are overcrowded and passengers are becoming frustrated with the delays.
